On-tap at Ale+Witch. It pours a deep, dark mahogany-amber hue with a tawny head and sheets of lace. Not black, per se, it is more akin to a darkly-colored BW. The nose has a lot of piney and herbal dankness and is evocative of SN's premium brews' hop profile. There is also a slight vegetal and catty aroma. A piney, earthy, and woody hop profile sits upon an English-style malt (i.e. biscuity, buttery and unobtrusive) and the whole thing reminds me, again, of a top-shelf SN offering. Some tea like bitterness is observed after a while, too. The feel is fairly creamy for a beer in the IPA family; I like. Overall, a very good Black IPA / CDA / ABlkA; one of my favs of the fledgling style.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Dark brown, almost black with a creamy mocha head.
S: Pine, floral notes, kiwi and citrus in the nose.
T: Kiwi, grapefruit peel, citrus peel, citrus, lemon and grass, followed by roasted malt, espresso and coffee. Pretty much what you want out of the style, but perhaps not the best fruit flavor profile.
M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.
O: I'd prefer tangerine, mango, fresh orange, pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, tropical fruit, etc. mixed with the roasty flavors, but this is still a great beer. I'd definitely recommend it, if you like the black ale style.
